So today Ajmal Kasab finally confessed. Let us see how the trial now proceeds. Hopefully, it should be brought to an early end.
This brings me to Afzal Guru. The Supreme Court pronounced him guilty in the attack on Parliament and upheld the death sentence that was announced earlier. He filed a mercy petition before the President who forwarded it to the Central Government. The last I heard about this was that the Central Government had sent it to the Delhi Government headed by Sheila Dixit for advice. This was several months back.
The Delhi Government was apparently too busy with elections to take a decision on the matter. That is a ridiculous excuse. But let us accept that reasoning for a moment. The elections are now completed. It should be business as usual by now. What is stopping the Government from taking a decision on the matter?
No less an authority than the Supreme Court found enough evidence of his involvement in the attack on the seat of democracy in this country - symbol of national pride and honor. What is there to decide?
Why did the petition have to be sent to the Delhi Government in the first place? Why is the Delhi Government taking so long to decide on what should be an open and shut issue?
Why is nobody raising these questions?
